Vertu for Bentley: A £10.7k smartphone to match your car
A phone to accessorise your Bentley? There’s only one contender.
Just when you thought you’d got all your car accessories sorted, Bentley goes and releases the Vertu for Bentley phone. The two marques have signed a five-year deal and this is the first that bears both names.
Each handmade model has the Bentley badge embossed on quilted calf leather from one of Europe’s oldest tanneries. Bang & Olufsen has been brought in to take care of acoustics (Dolby surround-sound), and camera-firm Hasselblad has pitched in to perfect the image-tuning.
We like the sound of the 24-hour concierge button. Dial at any time of the day or night and you’re put through to a team dedicated to servicing your every whim. From finding the perfect gift, to ‘money-can’t-buy’ events, experiences and everything in between.
Limited to 2,000 pieces, the ‘Vertu for Bentley’ smartphone is available in selected Vertu Boutiques worldwide from this month. Priced from £10,700 ($17,100). www.vertu.com.
